|Pretty Cure Info|
|Alter Ego||Holy Shine|
|Theme Color||Red (main)
Akari has long blonde hair tied into twin loose tails, and has golden eyes. She has freckles and star-shaped earrings. Her casual outfit consists of a red shirt with sleeves that go to her elbows, denim shorts and red thongs.
As Holy Akari (before she became Holy Shine), Akari only glowed with a red aura and gained superhuman powers, just like the Cures. She had little time during this transformation, and needed at least one Cure to help her with one of her attacks.
As Holy Shine, she physically ages to 18 years of age, and her grows wilder and longer, and has a pink heart with a white feather as her hair accessory. She golden flower earrings and wears the Heart Symbol (a golden heart) on her black vest, however the vest is different from the other Cures', because it is buttoned up. She wears no necklace, and has frilly white sleeves with red cloth covering her shoulders. She wears a white ribbon around her waist that ties into a bow, and a red skirt with white frills. Her shoes are red and show her toes.
Seeing as Akari was created from the Cures' strong feelings to save Earth, she is like a mixture of them all. She is good like Akiyama Akiko, faithful like Tachibana Chiharu, excitable like Fukui Emiko, brave like Nakamura Harumi and intelligent like Yoshida Minako. She also teaches the Cures about the Seven Emotions of Pretty Cure.
Revealing her identity to the Cures
In nearly every scene in Episode 10, Akari had been watching them (which everyone thinks is a bit creepy) but didn't even speak to them. Everyone started to feel uncomfortable, when Chiharu suddenly lost it and walked up to Akari, telling her off. But Akari managed to keep a straight face and revealed her identity: that she was Fujimoto Akari, and she is all the Cures combined into one.
First transformation into Holy Shine
In Episode 40, all the Cures were almost defeated, and Akari's transformation was running out of time, but suddenly, Cure Legend told everyone to combine their feelings of hope and love, and Akari suddenly transformed into Holy Shine, and she was able to have more control over her power, her transformation lasted longer and physically aged to 18 years.
Yoshida Minako - The two have a 'sisterly' relationship, and Minako acts as an older sister towards Akari. In return, Akari respects Minako and admires her. The sisterly relationship increases when Minako and Akari announce to the Cures that they are now adoptive sisters.
Pretty Cure - Akari respects all five of the Cures, and is more close to Minako.
"The five lights of the future combined! Holy Akari!"
Shōrai no go hikari ga kumiawasa! Hōrī Akari!
Holy Akari (ホーリーあかり Hōrī Akari) is Akari's first transformation. She controls the power of holy light, but to activate her transformation and attacks, she needs the Cures and the Fortune-Seeing Mirror. She can transform by saying the phrase, "Holy Fortune Make Up!"
Dreaming Arrow (ドリーミングアロー Dorīmingu Arō) is Holy Akari's attack with Cure Legend. Cure Legend needs to shout, "My sweet dream, pierce my heart with love!" and shoots a pink ball of light towards Holy Akari. Holy Akari catches it and it turns into a bow and arrow made of light. Holy Akari shoots at the target, which purifies it.
Faith Arrow (フェイスアロー Feisu Arō) is Holy Akari's attack with Cure Miracle. Cure Miracle needs to shout, "My sweet dream, pierce my heart with love!" and shoots an orange ball of fire towards Holy Akari. Holy Akari catches it and it turns into a bow and arrow made of fire. Holy Akari shoots at the target, which binds it with ropes.
Happy Arrow (ハッピーアロー Happī Arō) is Holy Akari's attack with Cure Fantasy. Cure Fantasy needs to shout, "My sweet dream, pierce my heart with love!" and shoots a yellow ball of thunder towards Holy Akari. Holy Akari catches it and it turns into a bow and arrow made of lightning. Holy Akari shoots at the target, which zaps it with lightning.
Brave Arrow (ブレイブアロー Bureibu Arō) is Holy Akari's attack with Cure Soul. Cure Soul needs to shout, "My sweet dream, pierce my heart with love!" and shoots a green ball of wind towards Holy Akari. Holy Akari catches it and it turns into a bow and arrow made of wind. Holy Akari shoots at the target, which blows all its energy away.
Wise Arrow (ワイズアロー Waizu Arō) is Holy Akari's attack with Cure Love. Cure Love needs to shout, "My sweet dream, pierce my heart with love!" and shoots a blue ball of wind towards Holy Akari. Holy Akari catches it and it turns into a bow and arrow made of water. Holy Akari shoots at the target, which freezes it in place.
"The beautiful goddess of light and love! Holy Shine!"
Hikari to ai no utsukushī megami! Hōrī Shain!
Holy Shine (ホーリーシャイン Hōrī Shain) is Akari's second transformation. She controls the power of light, and no longer needs the Cures to help her perform her attacks, but still needs the Fortune-Seeing Mirror for her transformation. She can transform by saying the phrase, "Holy Fortune Make Up!"
Shining Kiss (シャイニングキス Shainingu Kisu) is Holy Shine's purification attack, when she makes the Shining Kiss Stick appear, then uses the Fortune-Seeing Mirror to apply the lipstick, and the Fortune-Seeing Mirror turns back into her white bow from around her waist, then blows a kiss at the target, purifying it.
Six Cure Explosion (シックスキュアエクスプロージョン Shikkusu Kyua Ekusupurōjon) is the attack with all six Cures, including Holy Shine. The Cures transform into their Supreme forms while Holy Shine transforms into Elegant Holy Shine. The six Cures say the incantation and they attack the target.
Fujimoto (藤本): Fuji (富士) means 'wisteria' while Moto (モト) means either 'base', 'root' or 'origin'.
Akari (あかり): Akari is a shorter version of Hikari (ひかり), which means either 'light', or 'radiance'.
So therefore, Fujimoto Akari means either 'wisteria base light,' 'wisteria root light', 'wisteria origin light', wisteria base radiance', 'wisteria root radiance' or 'wisteria origin radiance'. This name could be a pun because Akari controls the power of light and is often depicted as radiant. Fujimoto is just a given name.
